    Africa Twin
    Hi I have a XRV RD04 1991. Reading all service manuals and visiting all websites in the world, don't clarify which needle jet holder goes where. One have 6 holes - one have 10 holes. My logic tells me, that the one with 10 holes is in carburettor 1, since its jetted a little larger than...
